Description of Services
Ebenezer respects your privacy rights. Ebenezer understands that the Internet and mobile communications can be powerful assets to your spiritual life. At the same time, we strive to respect and protect your privacy. When you are visiting this website or communicating with us by mobile device, we may collect all types of information concerning your viewing patterns, your browser, operating system and IP address, and any personally identifiable information that you provide to us, regardless of whether it is required or not. Personally identifiable information is any information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally. This includes, but is not limited to: name, address, email address, telephone number, zip code, gender, birthday, credit card information and hobbies. In order to provide you with a customized website and to track your viewing patterns, we may place a “cookie” on your computer that allows us to recognize you when you visit our site. For more information about cookies, see below. This policy is a summary of what information Ebenezer collects and how that information is used.
What type of information does Ebenezer collect?
Ebenzer collects two different types of information. One type is voluntary information, which you provide, such as registration information for events, membership information, or shipping and billing information. The other type of information Ebenzer collects is user information provided by your computer each time you visit this site or by your mobile device when you send us text message requests and we respond to them. The information that Ebenzer collects helps us to provide information and service to you. We may combine information from other sources with the information that we collect.
What does Ebenezer do with the information that is collected?
Any information that you provide to Ebenezer or that is obtained through this website or mobile communications may be used for church purposes. We may disclose your information to companies that provide services for us, to related or affiliated entities or to other sister churches for church purposes, but we will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to commercial entities. Any information that Ebenezer may disclose to third parties (other than service providers and sister churches) will only be released in the aggregate and will not contain any personally identifiable information. Aggregate information is useful for church statistics and marketing purposes. Ebenezer will not otherwise disclose your name, address, email address or phone number without your express consent, unless disclosure is necessary to comply with laws or relevant legal proceedings.
Ebenzer or other sister ministries may offer services to you such as chat rooms, message boards, or other similar discussion forums. Please be aware that any information you divulge in these arenas is deemed public information and is not protected.
What are cookies and how are they used?
How does linking to other sites affect my privacy protections?
How does Ebenezer protect the security of information collected about me?
The security of the information that you provide to us is very important to us. Consequently, we have taken several measures designed to protect your information. All transactions involving sensitive information, such as your credit/debit card number and expiration date, are conducted using a SSL (Secure Socket Layer) connection. This connection provides increased security to the information as it is transmitted to our website. In the event that our security system is breached, we will attempt to notify you as soon as possible.
Ebenezer protects the privacy of children.
Ebenezer is committed to protecting the privacy and safety of children. Ebenezer does not knowingly accept personally identifiable information from children who are under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent. If parents choose to grant consent, a parental consent form may be accessed. Simply print and complete the form and mail it to us at the address listed to the left. If you have any questions or concerns about the protection of children’s privacy, or if parents wish to deny consent and request that Ebenezer delete their child’s information, please contact us.
Ebenezer reserves the right to change or amend this policy.
This policy is effective as of September 14, 2020. Ebenezer reserves the right to change, amend, or restate this policy. Therefore, you should revisit this page from time to time to determine the current policy.
